Liza grew up in Half Moon Bay, California and began running in high school. Previously, she was an avid ballet dancer and had never participated in a team/school sport. After competing for UC Santa Barbara during her college years, she found her way onto the Aggies via the Bay to Breakers Centipede - the rest is history. She continues to run today because it provides a balance to her work and social life. Liza has a masters degree in Molecular Biology and conducts Clinical Research in the field of Neonatology at Stanford University.
Fun Fact: In high school, Liza was coached by long-time Aggie Kevin Ostenberg.
